Capcom cam't catch a break.

April Fools gone wrong?

 

 

Things just keep piling on. I don't want Capcom to fail. I just want them to get back to their roots (or just stop not listening to their fans) or Pre-SF4 (it seems like things went down hill around it's release).

I wonder if Joe is going to say something about their results on mobile gaming in a video or something.

 

Various recent no-nos, many of which happened around and after 2007. Actually, a lot of this was after Street Fighter 4, 2009 (2008 if you count the arcade releases).

Constant Mega-man hype ups... then cancels.

Various other hype ups... then let downs.

On disc DLC.

The Super, AE, and now Ultra editions of Street Fighter. Some of us may remember Joe's rant on this. SF isn't alone, other capcom games follow suit. However, Capcom isn't alone in this.

Shutting down Clover Studios (now Platinum games).

"True ending" DLC with Asura's Wrath.

The various lazy cover arts and print out typos and mistakes. Okami II with the ign watermark on the cover, for example.

Arguable bad creative decisions

People WANTING to leave Capcom. Keiji, the creator of Mega-Man and now MN9, for example.

Screw the baka gaijin. No ported games for them. Even though the games are really really really popular.

Funding a fortune into mobile gaming.

Give me some time to do some quick googling. Will edit in new findings and corrections.

I really hope capcom doesn't go under, that would be pretty sad. Even though they have made so many bad decisions, I still want to see them survive.

I find it funny really people say capcom should go back to its roots etc.  But the games that people say caused the start of the downfall are its biggest sellers ie Resident Evil 5 and SF4.

 

Capcom DO listen to the fans and that is the problem.  The fans dont even know what they want they ask for anything and everything and capcom tries to deliver.

Sure Capcom dont help themselves with horrid DLC practices etc.  But IMO its the fans causing them to go broke.  The only way for Capcom to get back ontop is make a resi game that is exactly like 1-veronica but with better graphics.  AND RELEASE A NEW DAMN SF GAME ALREADY!!.  Let SF4 die i mean ffs you give us Decapre as the 5th char YOU ASSHOLES!!!

Crapcom will probably make Hyper SF4 Turbo Edition or some shit like that with ten more clone characters. 23a93ce7c3c0b0029ac732346ed60b86_normal.

how about capcom makes good games that don't have the name hyper turbo interdimensional saga edition in their games and make something fun.

theres an idea there to stop cutting profits, thats my way of seeing it. (hey capcom how about ressurecting and continueing devil may cry where it left off from devil may cry 4 ?  because i think im not the only one who wants that shiz ;3

if that is the case then why isn't a new Megaman out yet? The fans wanted Megaman but Capcom screwed the entire Franchise. They screwed Devil may cry thx to Ninja Theory, the milk the customer with a new SF and Marvel vs...games, Resident Evil turned to be a Call of Duty Action game instead of a Survival/Action Horror. Fans wanted a Sequel to Chaos Legion but Capcom didn't listen to the Fans. The only good game was Monster Hunter 3.

Everything you just said in your second paragraph, and I quote:

...is what many many fans want. Not all, of course, but a lot.

Which, contradicts with your statement here:

 

I find it funny really people say capcom should go back to its roots etc.  But the games that people say caused the start of the downfall are its biggest sellers ie Resident Evil 5 and SF4.

Capcom DO listen to the fans and that is the problem.  The fans dont even know what they want they ask for anything and everything and capcom tries to deliver.

 

The fans, by the way, didn't want Capcom to invest 40 million USD into mobile gaming... because they KNEW it would flop. What happened? *fart noise*

And to add:

Fans want a new mega man. Capcom doesn't deliver.

Capcom teases at new Dark Stalkers. False hype.

Fans wanted UMvC3 to be balanced. Capcom does nothing.

Fans want complete games. Capcom leaves out/locks content and uses it as DLC.

Fans want certain SF characters to return. Capcom reuses SxT characters and makes Decapre. And clones (E.Ryu and Oni).

Fans want a good RE game. OP raccoon city is released. RE6 gets a very mixed reception.

Fans want another DMC. They made it quite clear that they didn't like the new Dante. What happened? New Dante stayed despite having enough time to change him and plenty of out cry. Sucker Punch handled New Cole waaaaaay better.

Fans want new Breath Of Fire. Gets mobile POS.

Let's not forget to mention how people left Capcom. Not fired. Left. Keiji Inafune for example. He listened to the fans, and boom. Mighty No. 9

 

How is ANY of that the fans' fault?

Trick question. It's not.

I'd hate to see'em go just because they have the rights to Okami. If they do somehow go under I hope to god Platinum picks it up and makes a console sequel.

GameTheory made a video about this exact thing... We want new shit, but sales of games in already existing franchises continue to soar.

Awesome discussion, and it sucks to see Capcom perpetually digging their own grave...just a matter of time it seems.

I'm glad they are losing money in the mobile department. Any company going into mobile gaming deserve to be punished.

i want platinum to get the rights to devil may cry and maybe the classic lost planet,  that would be some awesome stuff right there.

If they keep losing money like this, we will never get another Onimusha game.

As much as I hate to admit it. The odds of getting another Onimusha is probably as bad, if not worse, than Megaman. If it aint Street Fighter and can't whore it out like Street Fighter, they probably think it wont make money.

How? Simple when you think about it. Fans want way too fucking much. And God forbid Capcom make a 'budget' game out of any of our 'beloved' franchises because then all seven Hells will come down upon them (even if the game at question is good despite being "budget").

Don't let 'fans' decide what a game company should make. People don't know shit or what the fuck they want. All they want is to whine some more over either failed products that were rushed because 'fans demanded it' or over something that doesn't exist.

I don't get why Capcom is still having problems, how hard is it to make a Megaman game??? It doesn't even need to be a new Megeman game just remake a old one!

Decapre is an insult! The lack of Rockman is an insult but the biggest insult of ALL is Darkstalkers...

Every time I see Capcom I just hold up a middle finger in anger. It's pretty sad that I feel this way about a company that had given me so much joy in the past. I wish they would just start selling rights to some franchises. There are some games that need to be made and Capcom clearly can't make them.
